VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- Geologix Exploration Inc. (TSX: GIX)(OTCQX: GIXEF)(FRANKFURT: GF6)(BERLIN: GF6)(MUN: GF6)(STUT: GF6) ("Geologix," the "Company") announced today that its Board of Directors has adopted an Advance Notice Policy (the "Policy") in respect to the election of Directors.
The purpose of the Policy is to provide the Company's shareholders, Directors, and management with a clear framework for nominating persons for election as Directors. Persons must be nominated in accordance with the Policy in order to be eligible for election.
The Policy was adopted to further the Company's commitments to: (i) facilitating an orderly and efficient annual, general, or special meeting process; (ii) ensuring that all shareholders receive adequate notice of the Director nominations and sufficient information regarding all Director nominees; and (iii) allowing shareholders to register an informed vote after having been afforded reasonable time for appropriate deliberation.
The Policy requires advance notice to the Company where nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors are made by shareholders. The Policy also fixes a deadline by which nominations of potential directors must be submitted to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders, and establishes the information that must be included in the notice to the Company.
For annual general meetings of shareholders, notice to the Company of nominations of potential Directors must be made not less than 35 days and not more than 60 days prior to the date of the meeting. If the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the tenth day following such public announcement.
For special general meetings of shareholders called for the purpose of electing Directors (whether or not called for other purposes), notice to the Company of nominations of potential Directors must be made not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.
The Policy is effective as of May 6, 2014. Pursuant to the terms of the Policy, the Company will seek shareholder ratification of the Policy at its next annual general meeting of shareholders. The Company also intends to formalize the Policy, subject to obtaining shareholder approval at that meeting, incorporating its terms into its Articles.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Dunham Craig, President & CEO
